Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, Emirate of Dubai

Explore the extensive landscape and diversity of nature at Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, a protected natural area. Away from the bustle and change that is modern-day Dubai, this conservation project was established to maintain no less than five percent of the Emirate of Dubai's total landmass. Trek across the dunes on the back of a camel and look for the wildlife that has been reintroduced to its natural habitat, such as caracals, sand foxes, and Brandts hedgehogs. Enjoy a range of traditional Arab pursuits, such as archery and horse riding, or something a bit more modern, like sand boarding. Check out the falconry presentations, where you'll meet the birds of prey up close.
